Hi friends! Welcome back to the Friday Top Five series! I’m excited to share so many good things with you today so lets dive right into the top five products that I have been LOVING this week!

. . . . . . . . . .

This sweatshirt. I’ve been living in it for two weeks. (With appropriate washing of course! haha). Its a little pricey and I had been eyeing it for months before finally purchasing it. But! I will back that statement up with saying that it is absolutely worth the price tag because it is the softest thing in my entire closet! I ordered the grey and love it so much that I ordered the navy. It runs true to size and is super easy to dress up wth jeans and a necklace or dress down with leggings and sneakers! (Keep an eye out for sales because you’ll often be able to find it 40% off and even 50% off sometimes if you’re lucky!)

This conditioner. I refer to myself as a bit of a shampoo snob because I’ve only used Redken products for years. But! That’s because my hair is always healthy and looks its best when I have invested in good shampoo and conditioner. After I noticed a little dryness with the winter weather, my hair dresser recommended this brand and I absolutely love it! My hair is softer than ever before and looks so amazingly healthy!

This bag.  I searched far and wide for the perfect sized tote that could accomodate my stuff along with a toddlers.  This is my favorite ever and I’ve been using it for over a year.  Its the perfect size, lightweight, and there are so many prints and colors to choose from!  I originally purchased the Savannah bag which is slightly smaller and has more storage pockets inside.  I found that the larger St Anne tote was a better fit for me as Henley got older and I was throwing in her water and Lamby and all the other things on top of what I was already carrying for myself!  In short, its a pretty bag for every day life while still being large enough to be a good “mom bag”! (I know totes can get out of control with stuff everywhere, so I organize the inside with smaller bags!  One small bag for snacks. One small bag for essentials like tissues, chapstick, etc.  And one small bag of coloring/stickers for Henley!)

These potty covers.  If you have a child, these are a necessity!  These are made out of a soft, comfortable disposable paper and they come individually wrapped in a 2x4inch plastic wrapper (my measurements are approximate here).  They fit perfectly in my purse (and in my car and in Henley’s bookbag) and are such a lifesaver for public restroom stops!  Once unfolded, they are super large, so they actually drap completely over the potty and I don’t have to worry about if Henley touches anything!

This cabinet organizer.  It’s what dreams are made of if you are overly thrilled with organization!  It creates so much extra storage in small spaces because height is utilized.  The bottom section also pulls out so you can easily access everything stored in the back.  I bought this one specifically for under my bathroom sink!  I have face creams, a bag of hairties, box of contacts, and jar of vitamins on top and all of my hair products and hair spray on the bottom shelf!
